About Friday 6 April 1660

I expect others may have mentioned them along the way, but just in case - the Aubrey/Maturin books by Patrick O'Brian, although set more than a century later, are wonderful for their depictions of life on board British naval vessels (and for many other reasons). More modern, but perhaps still relevant as an account of sailing aboard a working tall ship, The Last Grain Race by the incomparable Eric Newby is well worth a read.
